Pieter Morlion from MORE LION was interviewed by Yannick Verbesselt for Artikel 21 bis, a news platform ran by students journalism. Read the article here.
MORE LION was selected, together with another freelancer, by the SPI (agence de développement pour la province de Liège) to support them on setting up a mobility platform for the region. MORE LION will share their expertise on the matter, build a strategy together with the SPI, select an appropriate vendor to deliver the platform and overview the realisation.
We are happy to announce this first collaboration with a government in Wallonia!
MORE LION was chosen by Oxfam Solidarity Belgium to organise an in-house course on project management and advise on project management processes within the organisation.
Practice what you preach. We do not have any company or other car, only own a bicycle, use public transport where possible and are part of two car-sharing systems (Dégage and Partago). We keep track of our professional kilometers driven and for 2019, we achieved the following modal split:
Train: 8570 km or 82,5%
Bike: 1327 km or 12,8%
Car: 491 km or 4,7%
Pieter Morlion gave a presentation at the MOVE conference in London, where 5.000 mobility & innovation minded people attended presentations on a very broad range of subjects: from self-driving technology, over growing plants in supermarkets instead of transporting them, innovations in cycling, the first female taxi-driver in Ghana to how to the car-industry think they will survive.
MORE LION published two documents in the 'knowledge center' by Fietsberaad Vlaanderen: an analysis of existing practices regarding the identification of bicycles and cyslists at bike parkings and an analysis of what logic could be the best fit for our bike parkings in Belgium.
Pieter Morlion wrote an article with insights on closing the gap between data and citizens:
"For over a decade, we have sumo-wrestled data sources. Lost limbs in battles for integration and our sanity in standardisation. AND WHAT FOR? To have the sweaty fruits of our labour rust on open data portals! It's not sexy, it's hidden and nobody ever uses it. This is a passionate plea for making data speak. For letting it tell the stories of people. If people don't come to the data, let the data come to the people."
In the article, 5 reasons are mentioned why data should be visualized, together with 5 nice examples from the Polivisu Project, Waze Broadcasters, Manyways, Telraam, Waylay and Stockholm.
Pieter Morlion from MORE LION took part in the jury that selected a number of projects to create a digital market place for projects that reduce congestion in the Flemish periphery of Brussels Capital-Region. The project call was an initiative from the New Mobility Network, part of De Werkvennootschap, that is in charge of some major infrastructure works in Flanders.
